I have about 300 battles, maybe even 400, since I unlocked the last mission. 2500 stun or track damage and top exp in my team. Well good luck!

In all those battles I have been top exp in my team twice and over 2500 combined stun/track maybe 5-6 times. Once I have got over 2500 stun damage alone when two Type 4 heavy in platoon went yolo.

The two times I was top exp in my team was when my team was crapand did nothing and I was more or less the only one who did damage.

I have been playing with FV207 (now sold cos FV3805 unlocked), Lorr 51 and M53/M55.

Once one Redshire, south spawn, I was stunning HTs whole battle. 26 stuns and 0 stun damage.

Lottery mission that one.

I think the problem here is in the whole stun mechanism implementation.  I often get the feeling that tanks will not shoot a stunned enemy but wait until the stun timer expires so that they dont have to share xp with arty.  Another problem in my opinion is the splash radius of higher tier artys.  It is so large that you can't attack the enemy tanks that are the highest priority without stunning or damaging friendly tanks.  If I stun everyone, I don't really help my teammates...they dont have an advantage since both they and the enemy are stunned.  I think we need to bring back the ammo choices for arty that were removed. Give us an ammo type (AP) that has zero splash and only stuns the tank it hits.  This would also give us back the value of Dead-eye and intuition that was stolen from arty players.

Not tried it myself (just started on the first T-55A missions) but I've been hearing people say to use a tier 9 arty with a stock gun for high rate of fire and apply stuns more often over longer stuns. Would also somewhat counter the issue with splash that Darth mentions.

I'm on this but I'm feeling it needs me to play for the mission over the win which I'm not willing to do.   If there is a lone tank I won't aim to miss to stun without damage, and and will take shots to kill low HP enemies.   I should get it one day but I would like to see these changed to a target for damage+assistance with a minimum for both.

The mission is quite hard compared to previous. After 9.18 I could quickly finish some SPG missions I struggled with for some time. For SPG15 you need to make a lot of dmg to finish top on xp and hope the rest of the team fires on targets you stun or detrack. So you need to fire at targets that are in reach for others. You have to win also, otherwise you will fail to get top xp. You need a quick firing arty. I did it with GW Panther after some 30 attempts. Tried also with T7 french arty but failed always on assisted damage. I guess it will be more difficult on higher tiers to finish top on xp but assisted dmg will be easier.

The other difficulty with this mission now is the re-use of repair kits. Which allow you're tracked victim to crawl back into cover.

I was stupid enough to use 4 orders on this mission.  602 games later and still haven't had a game close to unlocking them.  WG change these riddiculous condtions for completing with honours.

The OP was nearly a year ago. It seems to me that players are starting (!) to take advantage of SPGs stunning enemies now, but ICBW. What do you (anyone) think?

Finally got this. I think it took me ~100 battles or so with plenty of games with both over 2,5k assist OR 1st place in XP, but never in the same battle.

 

I did it with M53/55 with the bigger gun, rammer vents egld + cola. At the beginning of battle for some reason I decided to ASK people to shoot at the targets I stun so I get this mission. And they did! I got 4,9k (iirc) assist with 2,2k dmg and the first place so no honours.

I only play arty due to personal missions and in my 633 games I've gotten to SPG-5 in the Obj 260 campaign. Always thought that the SPG missions were ridiculously easy and mostly required pressing the mouse button. In all of those games, I remember one where I really had to "make some moves" and it is the only game where I felt like skill had anything to do with the result. Btw, got like 54% WR in arty, lol. Pure skill.

 

I mean you pick a spot and move after you shoot, that's it. Missions come automatically or so it seems.

Well, it must be said that your stated SPG skill is lower than that your average win rate, so perhaps you're not as skillen in SPGs as you think you are.

Kind of was my point, I have zero skill in arty. I point and click. LOL

Actually, I'm not sure you can draw that conclusion directly from WR.

 

I would think that the WR distribution for SPGs is narrower than for other classes. So I could still be better than the same x% of players whether I'm playing SPGs or something else.

 

Is there a WR distribution graph available for each class somewhere?

Try completing it with honours then. Getting 2500 stun, finishing first AND 3000 damage is as close to impossible as it gets. If they took away finishing first i would be very happy.

lol, I will absolutely not try to complete it, ever. Once I get the Obj 260 my arty days are gone.

I said that to myself as well. Never playing again in a useless arty. But then, I wanted to get the T-55A camo on my other German tanks...

Now I completed all 225 missions in the StuG IV, T28 Concept and T-55A campaigns with honors...

 

While there are ridiculous missions for every class, all the missions in the arty line were absolutely no fun and only relied on luck - just like the entire freakin' class.

But finally, I got some nice camo to put on all of my regular German tanks. But I will not forget the pain of having to play RNG artillery to get it... *shudders*

4 freaking xp from honours.. 2k more damage than number 1 in xp and the 2500+ stun on top, but still only 2nd in xp.. That's completely fair (the t-10 had less than 1k spotting..)
